To discover how genetics influence your risk for developing cancer, look to Austin Huber, CGC, a board-certified genetic counselor at Avera Cancer Institute in Sioux Falls, SD.
Cancer Genetic Testing & Counseling
Huber recommends that anyone with a personal or family history of cancer should discuss their risk for having a hereditary cancer syndrome with their doctor and, if concerned, ask for a referral to genetic testing and counseling for more information.
“Be proactive,” he encourages. “If you have any concerns or questions, we’re here to help you learn more about your personal risk so that you have the information you need to make better health care decisions in the future.”
After reviewing your personal and family history, Huber provides personalized insight about your risk for developing cancer and can walk you through the genetic testing process for hereditary cancer syndromes if warranted, including the implications of results received from such testing.
In his free time, Huber enjoys spending time with his family and watching sports, especially college basketball and the Minnesota Vikings.
